There's been some work done with maraging alloys, mostly for the military.

now I’m not familiar with that alloy, what alloy is it?
Very low carbon martensitic steels. More like a nickel-iron alloy.
"Maraging steel contains an extremely low amount of carbon (0.03% maximum) and a large amount of nickel (17—19%) together with lesser amounts of cobalt (8—12%), molybdenum (3—5%), titanium (0.2—1.8%) and aluminium (0.1—0.15%). Maraging steel is essentially free of carbon, which distinguishes it from other types of steel."

E.g.C-250, Maraging 300, etc.
